We were curious to find out how cruise lines create the mood for love on this, the most romantic of days.
And we were very pleasantly surprised to discover that Fred. Olsen always celebrates St. Valentine’s Day in great style across its fleet.
Guests onboard all four of its ships will be able to enjoy a romantic atmosphere, and each ship will interpret the theme in its own individual way.
So for example, the bars and restaurants are decked out in red and white, and the romantic theme is reflected in the daily quiz, evening entertainment and the food, with heart-shaped cakes for tea and special St. Valentine’s cocktails in the bars. There is a Valentine’s-themed dinner as well, with a matching dress code, such as ‘Hint of Red’ to inspire passengers’ imaginations.
Continuing the foodie theme, Celebrity has a Valentine’s-inspired menu in its speciality restaurants which includes Rosé champagne, various dishes for two and dishes with lots of red ingredients.
Sounds lovely, but we’re curious to know – what’s the romantic gesture you have done on a cruise?
Tell us below – and the one we think is the most romantic gets a heart-shaped box of chocolates…with love from us.
